Lesser Snow Geese at Leighton Moss RSPB

January 30, 2010:
Four Lesser Snow Geese had been in the area for several months except for a short absence on the Lune estuary. They usually kept together in a tight group, although often associating with Greylags. They were rarely seen other than at a great distance well out on the salt-marsh but as the harsher weather developed they came closer to habitation to graze and rest. Latterly they have been accompanied by a single Barnacle Goose (also seen in photos).
